Since yesterday WMT reports a line unreachable dns, robots.txt and domains though everything has been running since ages without issues and also showing up fine.

It could be a bug in WMT. Have you tried "Fetch as Googlebot" from WMT? What result do you get?

Generic advice for anything you see in WMT: Ignore it and see if it goes away.

Thanks a lot Lucy and aakk9999 Google fetch does work and the urls get submitted. However also today WMT reports no dns, no robots.txt though the domains can be reached
